Editorial Reviews


"This is clearly a most valuable reference book. It comprehensively reviews known local solutions of Einstein's equation and provides a secure base for future research."
Mathematical Reviews

Book Description

A completely revised and updated edition of this classic text, covering important new methods and many recently discovered solutions. This edition contains new chapters on generation methods and their application, classification of metrics by invariants, and treatments of homothetic motions and methods from dynamical systems theory. It also includes colliding waves, inhomogeneous cosmological solutions, and spacetimes containing special subspaces. Indispensible for those working on exact solutions in relativity or using them in physical or mathematical problems.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm playing with a model, a toy, that relates the strange shapes of Schroedinger's atom to distortions in spacetime by charge rather than mass. I need to learn general relativity to look at it from the other point of view. My tensor analysis is a little rusty, but I find the presentation clear and effective. The book is huge, however, and a little like taking a drink out of a fire hose.
